lyrics

Breaking waves throw a salty mist to the warm Riviera sun
For forty days, now, and forty nights, not a drop of rain has come
Lookin down from my hillside throne over a glistening sheet of blue
Off in the distance a hazy sky comes to shroud the afternoon

On a clear day you can see halfway to Spain
Make you want to jump on a southbound train
And head down to where they don’t know you at all
For the kind of gambling where you will rise or you’ll fall

So they take you to meet the gypsy, up through the canyon road
Where he’s home making cigarettes, dressed in day-old hipster clothes
I can tell when I see his eyes that he’s wise beyond his age
There’s a darkness, another side, deep within those pools of jade

On a clear day you can see halfway to Spain
Make you want to jump on a southbound train
And head down to where they don’t know you at all
For the kind of gambling where you will rise or you’ll fall

But it’s only for you…only for you
I’m fallin for you…I’m fallin for you!

I wanna dance like a wild poet in the loose grip of LA
But I can’t take all the pounding music cause my nerve endings are frayed
What little left that I had to give, well, the whiskey rhymed away
With all my luck, but I keep on searchin from behind these mirrored shades

On a clear day you can see halfway to Spain
Make you want to jump on a southbound train
And head down to where they don’t know you at all
For the kind of gambling where you will rise or you’ll fall
